National Foundation for Educational Research
Based on research conducted by the National Foundation for Educational Research (NFER), Ambition School Leadership (formerly The Future Leaders Trust) and the National Governors' Association called: "Executive headteachers: What's in a name?," this brief guide provides a summary of the executive headteacher (EHT) role, with practical questions and exemplar role descriptors to consider when creating the position. The findings of the research have been re-purposed by education expert Andy Buck to help leadership teams when they are considering EHT roles and associated structures. The resource comprises three parts: (1) An overview of the EHT role suitable for anyone working in the sector; (2) Practical questions to be discussed by all parties involved in establishing an EHT role; and (3) Exemplar job descriptors for an EHT role.
